Our Mission     Haiyi Liang  
 
Materials are microscopically structured. The specific geometry and topology naturally introduce separations in spatial, temporal and energetic scales, fundamentally dictating its response to external stimuli. The vast ways in tuning geometry and topology of materials offer vast choices in designing novel materials with novel functions. We are interested in probing the roles of geometry and topology on the mechanical behaviors of natural and artificial matter, via a combinational efforts of computational and simple theoretical considerations. Now, 3D printing is helping us to play and realize our dreams.
